World Archives Project

Ancestry.com is sponsoring an indexing initiative very similar to the LDS/GSU indexing project I have written about previously.  I checked the World Archives website today and saw that one of the 1st indexes they are creating is indexes to the Alabama State Censuses.

Anyone can participate and the index will remain free at Ancestry (images will be available to Ancestry.com subscribers and to those indexing participants who index a certain amount of data per quarter).

It looks like the indexing for the Alabama State Census project is currently at 19% … I can’t wait to see the results.
